Many SOLIDWORKS users ask, "How do I add a column to my Cut List that is tied to the Balloon Callouts?" This tutorial walks you through the steps necessary for balloons to be tied to a Custom Cut List Property. In this example, we'll walk through this process for a Weldment Cut List. Let's get started.
First things First
The balloons need to have the custom property to reference.
After inserting the desired Drawing views and when you are ready for Ballooning, there is still work to be done. The Weldment Cut List will need to be customized to include a column for your Custom Property.
The resulting drawing below shows the single balloon selected for change. It is referencing the Alpha Value column and the other is still tied to the default item number .
Note: Selecting multiple balloons at the same time allows you to change the referenced property for them all at the same time.
I hope you found this SOLIDWORKS tutorial helpful. Check out more tips and tricks below.
